Windows 2003 RAS ip conflict?
Posted on 2006-11-04
This has been bugging me for some time and I cannot find an answer. Looking for some help please...
The server 2003 has a fixed ip address of 192.168.1.1 and only 1 nic.
When clients connect in over pptp vpn using rras, they are allocated a dhcp address in that same range.
Most home routers use the same ip range so there is a conflict and, whilst the pptp connection is successful, clients cannot access email etc.
What I have been doing is getting staff to change their home dhcp scopes to 192.168.200.0/24 and that works perfectly.
I am wondering what the correct solution to this problem is on the server side?
In this setup it's actually sbs2003(sp1) and there are no complex routers/firewalls etc.
Thanks for the help...
